Ah, Sigh... Mommy Moment

So not my usual Mommy Moment for today. This one is a feel-good one. Sorry no humor today.

Lately I've been feeling just gross.  My lips have been super chapped for what feels like months now - half the time making me look like I've had bad collagen injections and the other half being so itchy I want to cry. I haven't been able to work out as much as I would like and I am sure that I'm gaining weight even though the scale tells me otherwise. On top of that I am just all around feeling like I can catch up on any thing I need to be doing.  So siting in my frumpy housewife uniform of a Seasame Street t-shirt, capri sweatpants and flipflops, hair uncombed, in a tangled mess on the top of my head, trying to get papers corrected.  I pull out my chapstick for the 500th time this hour and slap some on, when Honeybee takes my face in her hands and says: "Mommy! Look at me!" (Her new phrase of choice.) " Mommy Beautiful. Mommy Beautiful sooooo much!"

I give her a big hug and kiss and even though she has no idea, she has made me feel like a million bucks!

our children have that special ability to sooth away our pains, our own doubts just witha kiss and a hug. :)
